I have 4 ESX hosts,configured with HA and DRS on VMware Vsphere.DRS is configured for fully automation. Each ESX host has 10VM's. When one of the ESX host fails(maybe any reason), 
a) will the VM's get rebooted to any of the other 3 hosts(coz of HA) and then DRS will optimize the resources ? 
b) or will Vmotion happen(coz of DRS)? 
Basically am trying to find out if the VM's would reboot/restart at all ?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If a host fails then the guests will be restarted on whatever host is available, then DRS will move them around as needed.

vMotion can’t happen because the host running the host is offline.
